If you like asian food with a modern touch. Original zeshuan flavours. Good price for the quality. Service sometimes could be stressfull because the restaurant is always fully booked. I will be there again when i am in town!

Been here twice. First of all it seems like a good idea to book a table before you go, it's very busy and you may have to wait for quite a while if you just show up. An alternative is take away. The food here is excellent, without doubt the best Chinese in Oslo. Be attentive when the waiter explains... More

We came in for a early dinner and got a table with minimum waiting time (reservations recommended). We ordered the set menu (dim sum) and beer and tea. It took 3 tries to get the beer to the table... and the meal itself took 1h to arrive. We had to vacate the table 1,5h after arrival and didn't think this... More

We were here for a celebration and had the chambre separee, which was very nice as we had some privacy. The decor is dark and cosy, with a hint of asian elegance. Our waiter was a bit rushed and talked very fast, which felt a bit stressful and unnecessary. Was expecting a more calm and relaxing appearance from the waiter.... More

Fancy restaurant recomended by friends living in Oslo who know where it is good to go. You must reserve your table in advance. Just next to the National theater, its location is in the centre of the town. Elegant restaurant where the dishes served in style become a piece of art. Lobster & co... You can choose if you want...

I have visited this classy chinese restaurant many times the past years and it never lets you down ! It is situated just to the left of The Norwegian National Theater- when you stand at its front. Here are no chinese lanterns or other typical chinese artifacts. No chinese music that is nice the first 30 minutes and then gets... More

Went to the restaurant by recomendation of a friend. From outside look okay and not very special. Inside is quite nice and fancy. Should wear more casual but not short. We had a great meal. Delicious lobster. The price is typical norwegian pricing, more expensive than western part of Europe. But if compare to other restaurant we go in Oslo,... More

Visited this place for many times over 20 years, and it is still the best chinese in Oslo. However, new asian restaurants like CosmoThai and Mr. Bay nearby is recommended for better service. Hard to get a smile from the waitors, but very efficient and professional. Missing charm, and more interested in turnover than guests is the feeling. Dim Sum... More

Went with colleagues, and was very well treated.Food came rapidly, and service was smiling and efficient. As we had a lot of courses they were all quite small, but all togenther it was enough to satisfy mots tastes. Wine that folloved was excellent, and plenty as well. All together a nice experience.
